Friday rally to call attention to problems of the East Side

A rally will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday “in protest of the neglect and devastation of the East Side of Buffalo and the ongoing violence,” organizers said.

The event, being dubbed as the “We Speak Life Rally,” will take place at the corner of Doat and May streets and is being organized by New Generation Ministries, located at 97 Doat St.

“It’s time for the East Side to arise,” the group said on an event flier. “We have been neglected in one of the most high-profile, crime-ridden areas of the city, further complicated by the lack of much needed resources and services for our children and families.”
